Owen Beverly / Press

“Owen Beverly is a singer/songwriter hailing from Jackson, Miss. He received some acclaim for the “Drunk Lover” single that was featured on HBO’s Entourage. That level of exposure can be a dream, and yet a nightmare — the challenge being, how do you follow that up?”

“Beverly started out in his teens playing with a blues band in Mississippi before earning a music degree at CofC. His initial projects produced the solo Drunk Lover EP, which stunned the local scene in 2003 with its gutsy lyrical content and confident sultriness. Back and forth between the Lowcountry and Mississippi, he worked with a variety of local and national acts over the years as a hired sideman on tour, an assistant songwriter in the studio, and an extra at casual gigs with friends.”

“South Carolina Song of the Year By David Stringer on Dec 14, 2009 in Current Events, Featured It is about that time to reflect back on 2009. In doing so, in the next couple of days we are going to choose what we think are the best moments from South Carolina music. First off we have Song of the Year. This was an easy choice for us and apparently for most of our readers. When we asked around to find out what song you thought it should be, everyone said “Legs and Scars” by Tent Revival. My response to them, you are absolutely correct. Just to confirm our choice of this song we went and saw Tent Revival Friday night and hands down this song has won everyone over. “Legs and Scars” is available for free to download on their Myspace Page. What won us over? A perfect mix of heartbreak, vivid imagery and a powerful climax. From the first time we heard “Legs and Scars” we knew it was great and probably won’t be topped for a while.”
